Beer or run? Run or beer? And.... The RUN won! What has happened to me?

Imagine the picture....husband comes in this evening and says 'Oh good, barbeque tonight - would you like a beer?'. 'Hmmm no thanks I think I will go for a run'. WHAT????

It was after 6 but the temperature was still over 20 degrees and I chose a run over sitting in the garden with a cold beer. Crikey how times change.

Went for a run and it was SO hard. I was beetroot red by the time I got back and the sweat was literally dripping off me but boy...did that beer at the end just taste sooooo good :)

  • Oh, that's a relief - I was worried that you'd had to sacrifice the BEER !!


  • Oh no, in fact I had several beers :) After all I had burnt off the calories even though my run wasn't as far as I would have liked. Think the heat got to me more than the lure of the beer.... :)

  • I was sporting the beet root red this evening too! But I had no barbecue or beer waiting for me... Just orange squash and pasta! Well done you for running! I may have caved...

  • Oh, thank goodness for that! You got the beer in the end - I was starting to worry! At least, when you've put the run in, you feel that you've earned it!!

    Well done BTX4!!


  • Glad to hear you got your beer, makes sense you will obviously have needed to replace lost fluids!!

  • Good for you for finding such a great run-beer balance.
